WEEKEND IN WARSAW, NOVEMBER 6-8
If you want to receive our weekend guide by email, please enter your address below. Delivery every Thursday.
Due to the pandemic restrictions, we are recommending 5 categories of online events to help you relax over the weekend.
We are also reminding you of our guide to safe striking available here
1) Online Film Festivals
First, the American Film Festival and New Horizons. The combined forces of two Wrocław festivals will present over 50 films from outside the mainstream. “Sweat” (shown in Cannes, problematizing social media) and “Glorias” (biography of a feminist icon – Gloria Steinem – with Alicia Vikander and Julienne Moore) seem particularly noteworthy. Tickets cost around 18PLN per film.
When: from Thursday, November 5, to Sunday, November 15
Secondly, CINEMAFORUM, a festival presenting short films from around the world. The “Masters and Mistresses” section, presenting the works of, among others, Yorgos Lanthimos (Oscar nomination for “The Favorite” in the Best Film category) and Taiki Waititi (Oscar for the script for “JoJo Rabbit”) seems particularly interesting. The movies can be watched for free.
When: until Sunday, November 8
Thirdly, Przeźrocza presents new trends in the documentary cinema while referring to film traditions. The movies can be watched for free.
When: until Sunday, November 8
2) 10. Anniversary of Centrum Nauki Kopernik
Centrum Nauki Kopernik was the first institution to combine a museum, laboratory, and playground in such an engaging and innovative way. To celebrate the tenth birthday, there will be scientific demonstrations, experimental stations, experiments in laboratories, and screenings at the Planetarium. And it’s all online. Cool pastime for children and adults.
When: Saturday and Sunday, November 7 and 8
3) Music, dance, theater festivals
Classical music seems to fit well in online broadcasts, and this weekend we can choose between two high-class events. Even if you don’t like the classics, maybe now you will appreciate its soothing effect on the psyche and body.
Farinelli kontra Carestini are arias and duets from operas by G.F. Handel, L. Vinci, J.A. Hasse, N. Porpora, R. Broschi arranged by the Royal Baroque Ensemble recorded on August 5 in the Golden Room of the Kazimierzowski Palace at the University of Warsaw
When: Saturday, November 7, from 19:00 to 22:30
AUDIO STAGE 2020 brings together composers specializing in experimental music. In groups, they prepare their acts in cooperation with actors, mimes, and dancers.
When: Sunday, November 8, from 18:00 to 20:00
4) Eat like a king
If you are wondering how to diversify what appears on your plate, we invite you to our cooking workshops. But cooking is not the end. You still have to eat with style. At the workshop organized by the Wilanów Palace Museum, you will learn what rules governed the royal table of Jan III Sobieski. A ready idea for an early Saturday noon for children, teenagers, and adults.
When: Saturday, November 7, from 12:00 to 13:00
5) Watch “Król”
Of course, it is about the long-awaited screen adaptation of Szczepan Twardoch’s novel “Król” about Warsaw in the 1930s. All reviews announce that we are to expect a hit like “Blinded by the lights”. You can watch it on the Canal + Platform or on CANAL + PREMIUM.
When: Friday, November 6 from 21:00
